With an investment of over 160 million yuan (about US$26 million), the movie was originally set to be released during the National Day Holiday slot. According to Zhang, in order to set aside enough time for the 3D effect team, they had postponed the movie’s release to November.

Martial arts flick “The Four” kicked out “Painted Skin: The Resurrection” to sit in the top spot with a surprisingly $11.13 million in its second week of release for a two-week total of $24.16 million. “Painted Skin: The Resurrection” ended its fourth week of release to number two of the boxoffice chart, adding $9.13 million for a total of $109.15 million. Those figures put “Painted Skin: The Resurrection” officially to become the highest grossing domestic movie at all time, taking the boxoffice record from “Let the Bullet Fly” (2010), which grossed a total of $101.37 million in mainland China.

The 135-minute film features a gang of South Korean thieves who team up with a Hong Kong crew to steal a diamond necklace from a heavily-guarded casino safe in Macau. As the cops close in, old betrayals — and misunderstandings — resurface.

A1: Gong Li’s Singaporean husband confirms divorce rumoursCNA

Singaporean businessman Ooi Hoe Seong has personally come out to say that he and Gong Li have been divorced for three years.

In other related news, according to a netizen’s tip-off, Gong Li was seen consciously hiding her tummy at the 2nd China-France Film Festival on May 14 and looked visibly tired. The actress, who is dating and living with a French photographer, 13 years her junior, for the past six years, is speculated to be pregnant.

No, it isn’t an exhibition of those kind of photos.

Lok’s revelation has inadvertently put every single TVB actress aged around 23 under suspicion and sparked renewed speculation over the identity of the alleged victim.

The scandal revolves around wealthy 62-year-old Hong Kong businessman Lau Ding Sing, who is currently on trial for acquiring about 60,000 photos (some of them through intimidation) of a number of men - including a few actors and models - in various states of undress, and allegedly using these photos to blackmail some of these men into submitting to his will.
